THE TURF AND FIELD. 1 The Dexter Park July Meeting an Assured Shccbss. ; ■ i Improvements MaHng---Soma of! the Stables that WiH ‘Be Eep- ! resented. : - The Most Desperately-Contested Base-Ball Match on Record.' THE TURF, THE DEXTER PARK JULY VEETZKG. The advent of bright, sunny weather has been hailed with peculiar satisfaction by the turfmen at Dexter Park, who have been seriously hindered by the backward spring in training and working their* horses, in preparation for the July meet ing. Now the business of getting ready will be gin in earnest, and tho ensuing month will 1 be a lively one.’ The same brightened condition of things enables the Dexter Park Association to proceed with many important improvement on the track and appurtenances. Tho running course is being straightened, widened, and graded, so that it may be drained’ as effectually as the trotting track, which is now in fine order, being considered much ‘*faster” and better than ever before. A new stand for the judges aud reporters ia to be constructed. It will be placed about 100 feet south of . the pres ent stand, thus giving a longer stretch for the send-off before the first turn ia,reached; This will be of great value in getting away after the word ia given; ,A considerable; portion of the southern end of tho grand stand, is to be set apart for the occupancy of ladies. It will be comfortably fitted , up, and, in connection. with the other stand 2and. the balconies', will afford most eligible and' attractive ac commodations for the fair, sex.. The pool : stands are. to. be. -wholly removed from the quarter stretch, and placed either at the north .end or in the rear of the grand stand—anywhere, so that the selling may be conducted privately, and not obtain the* of fensive prominence that it has hitherto enjoyed. All these improvements, and many others of minor importance, are moat excellent, and will tend greatly to enhance the comfort and 'enjoy ment of tfce patrons of the races. They should not stop here, however. Inasmuch as the com plete success of the July meeting ia assured be yond peradventure, the Club should see to it that extra accommodations are provided for spectators. Ten thousand people can be taken care of very well with the present facili ties, but in case • 20,000 should assemble on any one occasion, —and it is more than prob able that the attendance will reach that , figure during the races,— it is difficult to imagine what would be done with so vast a crowd. Some provision should be made for them, for they will surely be there on one or more days during the meeting. We have said that the success of the meeting is assured beyond peradventure. It ia already known that the attendance of horses from all parts of America will far exceed that of any other meeting ever given at Dexter Park. There will be one hundred race-horses alone, not to mention the which are to be here ,in great numbers. The judicious position taken by the Club with reference to the difficulty between the Trainers 1 and Drivers 1 and the National As sociation has secured the warmest-good .will of the former, many of whom have written to Mr. Simpson, the Secretary, assuring him that they would bring their horses to Ohicagcrif they had to trot them for nothing. Positively ail the great trotters of America will he here. The horses will.bring the spectators, and so the suc cess of themeetmg is a fixed faefc.- Mr. Simpson is daily in receipt of : letters from turfmen ail over the lend, notifying him of their intention to enter thelrhorses m the July races, and bespeaking stable accommodations. Among the well-known stables which are certain to come, the Southern States are represented by T. G. Moore, W- Jennings, Geo. C. CadwaUader, A. Bibrell, £!. HarrisonE. War wick, JLYan Liew/Fred. Lloyd, G. B. Warwick, T. Or. Bacon, and others, all of them containing the most noted of racers. Ohio will contribute the stables of Blandy Sc Son, of'Zanesville, and 0.-P. Chaney, of Canal Winchester; Wisconsin, those of * Mr. Barnes, of Beaver Bam, and Mr. Bbuglaa; and the Illinois stables include those of Gen. Bowett & Bro., Messrs. Powers, and Reynolds, Gray, Barron, Simpson,- and otners. John Bemas and the Chappels will represent Michigan. - • *. * THE KENTUCKY HACKS.

Phtladelphia, May 14.—An enormous crowd witnessed the second game between the Phila delphia and Athletic Clubs to-day, folly 6,000 people being present. The weather was cloudy and threatening rain, which at one time fell for a few minutes during the game, but did not last. The Fhiladelphias were the favorites at 100 to 80. The Athletics scored one in the second inning by means of Clapp’s one-base hit and a three-baso hit by McMnilin. The Fhiladelphias scored one run in the third and two in the fifth inning through a couple of bad errors,by Fisher at right field, and base nits by Malone and Meyerla. In the sixth Inning Mcßride voluntarily, exchanged positions with Fisher, who pitched during the balance of . the game, three men having been given their bases on called balls, and six base hits—three of which by Cuthbert—were made off Mcßride’s pitching in the first five innings. The Athletics tied their opponents’ score, in the eighth inning by and Anson’s fine hits and an. excusable error of. Meyoilo’e. In, the T»,nfb inning, with two men on the bases and two out, Human made a most extraordinary 1 raining catch and blanked the Quakers, and the Athletics being also blanked, a tenth inning was begun, amid themostintenseexcitemenL Acouple of wild pitches gave Treacy arml after two hands' were out, Fisher’s errors thus giving the Quakers all the runs mads so far. In the same inning NUMBER 272. fine base hits' by MoMullinjMcßride,- and Anson earned a run for the Athletics, again tieing fh* scot©. • Both nines were blanked in the eleventh and twelfth innings, Mornon being the only one to reach first'base and being caught napping there. A close decision was against him. In the thirteenth inning Palmer reached first by Sutton’s muff, and was sent home after two men .were outby good base hits by Zettlein and Cuth bort, thus giving the Quakers the game, as Ahson.waa the only one ia mat© . a clear bit for the Athletics, although the score might have been again tied had not tho umpire decided as foul a seemingly fair ball-bit by Pisher. The game was one of the finest. ©Tor witnessed. The fine, bat ting of Cuthbert, Anson, and in fielding of Palmer. McGeary, Pialer, and Sutton, and the -out-fielding of Imirnan,-Cuthbert, Mc- Mullin, and Mcßride being the main features, umpiring throughont was very poor, and the Athletics decidedly suffered the most thereby, one of the men being put out on called strikes, and four bases given on called balls to the Quak ers. The following is a summary of the game • .Philadelphia, Pa. t May. 11.— Second game of the championship series between the athletics and Phila delpkias, both of Philadelphia, Philadelphia. -Ri B p\A\ Athletic.

Loring, a boot and shoe dealer at No. 116 West Madison street, whose name was rather unpleasantly connected with ** an out rageous assault” upon the person of Mr. G. B. Kane, of the ink-making firm of Kane Sc Co., mentioned in The Tribune yesterday, claims to have been entirely misrepresented. He. states that in answer ic an advertisement he called on Kane, some time ago, for the purpose of ex changing a watch for a lot. Kane produced a map of the city, and pointed out the streets on which the real estate was situated. Lonng went with a friend to take a look at the property, and, being satisfied with it, returned and l com pleted the * exchange. receiving • from none a ' deed.- Supposing that the • latter was an honest man, he neglected to examine the paper until after he returned from an Eastern trip. Then he discovered that the deed was for a valueless lot in the swamps of Calumet. He immediately sought out Kane, and demanded aproper exchange, or the return of his watch. Kane said the exchange was cor rect, and in accordance with the advertisement. Loring denied this. Kane then called him a liar, and struck him in the face. For this affront Loring whipped him. Mr. Loiring says that this was all there was to the outrageous as sault ; that he can prove that his statements as to Kane's honesty are correct, and that he will bring suit to recover damages.
